Top Jewelry and Accessories Trends for Spring

Mar 15, 2019

When Etsy Trend Expert—and bona fide accessories addict—Dayna Isom Johnson named maximalism as one of the biggest trends to watch for 2019, she was already daydreaming about the implications for her personal style. “I’ve never been a dainty kind of girl when it comes to accessories,” admits Dayna. “I always have something chunky on.” And this spring, we’re taking a page from Dayna’s book and embracing the chance to shake off our winter blues with a slew of eye-catching baubles, bags, pins, patches, scrunchies, and scarves. From a more-is-more approach to stacking rings and bracelets (appropriately dubbed an “arm party”) to an explosion of playful hair accessories in a rainbow of hues, it’s all about having fun with your look. “Don’t be afraid to go bold and really let your personality shine,” says Dayna. “Mix colors, patterns, and textures, and remember: In this maximalist world, you make the rules.” Read on to discover the five accessories trends you won’t want to miss this season.

Hair accessories

“Hair accessories are absolutely huge right now,” says Dayna. “This ‘90s-inspired trend is the epitome of fashion meets function.” Whether you’re looking for a clever way to hide post-workout locks (may we suggest a velvet scrunchie, à la a certain A-list actor at the Oscars?) or in the market for the perfect statement piece to transform your summer festival getup and hold your hair back while you groove (hello, prismatic pom-pom headband), there’s a suitable style for every occasion. And don’t forget barrettes: “Minimalists can get in on the trend with a single, classic gold clip—or, if you’re like me, you can pile on six! It’s completely up to you.”

Arm parties

Bust out the piñata and ready the confetti—it’s the year of the arm party, and everyone’s invited. “Arm parties are all about piling on rings and bracelets,” says Dayna. Not sure where to dive in? Start simple. “Choose three or four pieces that show off your favorite metals and stones, and spread them out across your fingers and wrists in whatever arrangement speaks to you.” Keep it monochromatic in gold or silver, combine metals, or incorporate textile, wood, and beaded pieces for a wild, one-of-a-kind mishmash entirely your own. The good news? There’s no wrong way to rock this ultra personalized trend—it’s your party, after all.

Textile jewelry

We’d never ask her to pick a favorite, but when it comes to her love for jewelry with a textile touch, Dayna can’t hold back: “This is the look I’m most excited about for spring,” she confesses. “I just love anything embellished!” From a hand-stitched beetle brooch that makes bugs look beautiful to customizable DIY bracelets ideal for gift giving, these fiber-based pieces bring craftsmanship into the spotlight, celebrating artisan handwork while effortlessly elevating your look. “If you’re a jeans and T-shirt kind of gal, you can toss on a bright embroidered statement necklace or a pair of deconstructed tassel earrings, and between the color and the texture, your outfit is instantly upgraded.”

Crystal motifs

Last year, we fell hard for the colorful gemstone jewelry trend, and this season everyone’s favorite stones are taking the rest of the accessories world by storm. “Gemstone jewelry is still going strong, but now crystal motifs applied to other mediums are starting to pick up steam,” explains Dayna. “Personally, I love the design on textiles like a cotton tote or silk scarf.” For a smaller pop of color, consider a pink enamel pin with a glittery rose gold finish or an amethyst-inspired sew-on patch for your trusty denim jacket.

Bucket bags

The bucket bag has historically been a workhorse—the iconic 1923 Louis Vuitton Noé carryall was specifically designed to fit five bottles of champagne—and today’s scaled-down versions are equally suited for toting seasonal essentials. “As we move into spring and start spending more time out and about, I like to step up my bags and purses game,” says Dayna. “Bucket bags are a staple of any handbag wardrobe, but today we’re seeing the classic style reinvented with fresh materials and finishes, and popping up in new forms like backpacks.” Whether you opt to fill yours with car keys and lipstick or the sparkly beverage of your choice, this versatile bag is a must-have.

    Hello! Thank you very much for the wonderful selection! Great variety of shops and products! I have also a lot of ideas with bright ornaments, now I am working in my shop with wooden products - gifts for women using decoupage technique - wooden jewelry boxes, wall key holders, mirrors and combs. And I wanted to do something with beetles and butterflies. I also have a felting shop and I can implement many of my ideas with new trends. But why in one day only 24 hours? Thanks again!

    Very helpful information. Thank Katie Hawley for an interesting review. I liked the new trends in jewelry. I, in my store, sell earrings in the form of fringe and tassels. All my friends told me that earrings tassels are no longer in trend. They were wrong !!! Fringe and textile tassels are popular this season.

    Catherine from TheRedBeadBarn said 67 days ago

    A wonderful jewelry collection! I really enjoy the textile and fiber art jewelry. However, I wonder why bead embroidery jewelry artists aren't featured as well as 90-100% is hand-sewn? Some call it Needle Art but most of us call ourselves bead embroidery art. Thank you! - Jewelry Taylor Made

It inspires me to create a new lace collection of fashionable colors of this season, such as: living coral, red joker, turmeric, pepper stalk, mango mojito, soy, moss terrarium, deep dark shade of blue. Tatting lace jewelry is always feminine and elegant! And elegance will always be in trend!
